There is a Mitsubishi similar to the one you've posted running around daily in Pune, with an 80s Bombay MFC regn.

Dussey t sure is a 1960-61 Willys Jeep Station Wagon. It came in both 2 Wheel Drive and 4 wheel drive and as StationWagons, Sedan Delivery and Pickup versions. I had one till recently and gave it up due to lack of parking space. It has the same 4 Cylinder Hurricane engine with a three speed box.
M&M again reintroduced the Station Wagon in a two tone colour with the same Hurricane engine in 1978.The bodyshell had no frills, chrome as in the original.It was not the same old and aesthetic bodyshell. The chassis ,suspension and wheels were the same but the body looked quite shabby. It only had the Mahindra name on the front grille.

Looks-wise it's disgusting, but very well-maintained!

RED CROSS used to use these. As did UNICEF & WHO - used to see a lot of these as a kid. These are / were WILLYS petrols.

That's all I know of the same !!!!!!!!

My humble contribution !!

The topmost one featured here with the two tone paintwork and double chrome side strips is a two wheel drive version of the Willys Station Wagon.

thats right in part. the badagas are an agrarian community who are in some manner allied/ descended from the hindu people who migrated to the higher hills to escape in some measure the persecution of tipu sultan and his crowd.
they are also very similar in some of their customs etc, to the coorg community of karnataka. however, while the coorgs stayed back to fight, being a braver, gutsy, war-like race, the precursors of the badagas buzzed off to the nilgiris because they were a more peace loving lot who wanted to lead a quiet life!

The old Willys overland used to be called Badaga Vandi or Badaga Van because possibly the majority of those who used these as taxis were from that community - atleast when I was in school.

The uncle of the lady where my dikras Cyrus and Darayus went / go for French tuitions used to have it. The original engine is 6 cylinder petrol, known as Tornado. Two more gentlemen had it. Mr.Sushil Waman Welingkar and Mr.Veeraiah. Then there was MRX8592, a 2 wheel drive where we had replaced the original beam axle with FC 360D walla tube axle (where? you guessed right. This was in 1980). I have given this information elsewhere on the forum, reacting to Shyam's photograph of one in Hyderabad.

I am pretty sure the BMF is Mr.Welingkar's. The number rings a bell. I would love to meet him. He has used army wheel rims and full floating rear axle (if I remember correctly, the origial car had the semifloating axle), whoever has prepared this car knows what he is doing.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

I love the grey/white. The Blue and white seems to be a runner- hats off to the intrepid folks who keep these running, and in such fine fettle- Obviously takes a lot of ingenuity and patience.

Here are some station wagon photos, fresh off the scanner. I estimate they are around 10 years old at least.

MRX 5384 used to belong to and stand outside Steelman Engineers in Camp, Pune for donkey's years. It later got Maruti van taillights. I haven't seen it in a year or so, though it may still be with them.

MRX 7426 and MZA 2877 used to be spotted visiting my neighbour very often, I assume they belonged to the same person. The blue wagon is the most original one I have seen to date, still sporting the original hubcaps. That's me and my dacshund Leo.

MH 12 W 1480 used to stand in Salisbury Park. I recently spotted it looking even sorrier in a nearby location.
